Scruid (Scala+Druid) is an open source library that allows you to compose queries easily in Scala. The library will take care of the translation of the query into json, parse the result in the case class that you define.

Currently the API is under heavy development, so changes might occur.

Example queries:

Scruid provides three query consructors: TopNQuery, GroupByQuery and TimeSeriesQuery (see below for details). You can call the execute method ona query to send the query to Druid. This will return a Future[DruidResponse]. This response contains the Circe JSON data without having it parsed to a specific case class yet. To interpret this JSON data you can run two methods on a DruidResponse:

  • .list[T](implicit decoder: Decoder[T]): List[T] : This decodes the JSON to a list with items of type T.
  • .series[T](implicit decoder: Decoder[T]): Map[ZonedDateTime, T] : This decodes the JSON to a timeseries map with the timestamp as key and T as value.

Below the example queries supported by Scruid. For more information about how to query Druid, and what query to pick, please refer to the Druid documentation

TopN query

case class TopCountry(count: Int, countryName: String = null)

val response = TopNQuery(
  dimension = Dimension(
    dimension = "countryName"
  threshold = 5,
  metric = "count",
  aggregations = List(
    CountAggregation(name = "count")
  intervals = List("2011-06-01/2017-06-01")

val result: Map[ZonedDateTime, List[TopCountry]] = response.series[List[TopCountry]]

GroupBy query

case class GroupByIsAnonymous(isAnonymous: Boolean, count: Int)

val response = GroupByQuery(
  aggregations = List(
    CountAggregation(name = "count")
  dimensions = List("isAnonymous"),
  intervals = List("2011-06-01/2017-06-01")

val result: List[GroupByIsAnonymous] = response.list[GroupByIsAnonymous]

The returned Future[DruidResponse] will contain json data where isAnonymouse is either true or false. Please keep in mind that Druid is only able to handle strings, and recently also numerics. So Druid will be returning a string, and the conversion from a string to a boolean is done by the json parser.

TimeSeries query

case class TimeseriesCount(count: Int)

val response = TimeSeriesQuery(
  aggregations = List(
    CountAggregation(name = "count")
  granularity = "hour",
  intervals = List("2011-06-01/2017-06-01")

val series: Map[ZonedDateTime, TimeseriesCount] = response.series[TimeseriesCount]

To get the timeseries data from this Future[DruidRespones] you can run val series = result.series[TimeseriesCount].


The configuration is done by Typesafe config. The configuration can be overriden by using environment variables, e.g. DRUID_HOST, DRUID_PORT and DRUID_DATASOURCE. Or by placing an application.conf in your own project and this will override the reference.conf of the scruid library.

druid = {
  host = "localhost"
  host = ${?DRUID_HOST}
  port = 8082
  port = ${?DRUID_PORT}
  secure = false
  url = "/druid/v2/"
  url = ${?DRUID_URL}

  datasource = "wikiticker"
  datasource = ${?DRUID_DATASOURCE}

  response-parsing-timeout = 5 seconds
  response-parsing-timeout = ${?DRUID_RESPONSE_PARSING_TIMEOUT}


To run the tests, please make sure that you have the Druid instance running:

docker run --rm -i -p 8082:8082 -p 8081:8081 fokkodriesprong/docker-druid
